Industrial networks

Specialised networks for smart industry

Industrial networks are designed to operate in industrial environments, where the equipment is exposed to temperature fluctuations, dust, dirt and moisture.


Temperature fluctuations

The switches have to operate at temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +75 °C.

External influences

Industrial switches have specifically designed housings to prevent the ingress of dirt, dust and moisture. The IP factor indicates the degree of protection.

Electromagnetic radiation

Switches used in electric power facilities come with a protection against electromagnetic radiation in line with the IEC 61850 standard.

Network connection

The switches provide a network connection at the L2 and/or L3 OSI levels for Ethernet, FastEthernet and Gigabit Ethernet.

Ring topology

Ring topology provides a fast convergence in the event of failure (under 20 msec). The G.8032 and G.8031 standards are used in the ring topology.

Which characteristics are mandatory for the power supply system?

Industrial switches must come with either built-in or separately mounted (on a DIN rail) power supplies. Power supplies used in combination with industrial switches must include protection against:

  • short circuit,
  • overload,
  • surge and
  • overheating.
